Notes

  • Player InjuryFrom the Daily Herald: "Gardner the right-half was injured halfway through the second half...This necessitated reshuffling of the team and England had to play with four forwards. Beresford the inside-right dropped back to right-half with Gardner a passenger on the wing and Crooks at inside-right."
